You won't see anything until next June. You'll never see new console announcements in the third quarter of the year, because no matter WHEN the consoles are scheduled to come out, an announcement in the third quarter would sabotage their Holiday sales numbers for the current generation.

Everything I've read so far has them waiting till 2014 to release any new consoles. They said theres so much life still left in the current systems theres no reason to upgrade yet.

From what I understand, PS3 is intended to last for a longgg time(dont expect a ps4 for a while) and the 360 is supposed to be updated and continued to be released as a 360, but with better hardware to support new games.

Honestly, the idea of just upgrading a console and allowing it to continue to play the "old generation" of games is probably the best.

The only downside the 360 has right now is that it uses DVDs instead of Blu-Rays for it's games, so a lot of bigger games are coming with 2 - 3 discs now for the 360. It could also use some larger hard drives for it as I know a few people that are running out of space on their current drives.

Anyone who even buys a remotely close to new 360 is getting a 80gb hd minimum I believe. I bought a kinect brand new for 200 and it has a 250gb hd. I'd hope people are trading in their first generation 360's for a newer one by now, lol.

Totally agree though, the 360 needs to read blu-ray.

Nope.

The base Xbox 360 has a 4GB drive on it which is just about worthless (but they sell it for $199 and can advertise that it's "cheaper" than the PS3). The 250gb one with a kinect is $399 anywhere so I don't know how you got it for $200, unless someone really needed the money or it fell off the back of the truck.

And yes it needs blu-ray

That problem hasn't popped up in a while, all the new 360s are very stable. And while I'm no fanboy (I've owned Nintendo and Sony consoles in the past), the 360 is by far the superior choice for online gaming, even if you do have to pay $50 a year for the service.

RROD were user problems really, demand for the new system didn't provide long term testing, and demand for slim compact units compounded that problem of long term testing for heat problems in different enviorments.

A a true hardware flaw would have them all break, but no so

So why did MS extend the warranty to three years if it was user causes? Console gaming is ok I guess, but PC gaming is where it is at.

Ive never had an Xbox 360 get the RRoD. Even the 360 i got at midnight when they came out lasted until the new slim came out last year when i traded it in for the new one.

I have a theory about the original 360's rrod. It wasn't really an overheat thing, and if you religiously kept your console horizontal, you may never see an RROD. Vertically, there's no airflow on the old design. Also, the southbridge chip isn't held in with any pins, just solder dots. If you kept it vertical and it got too hot, that solder got soft and separated on the southbridge a little...Which is why when you wrapped it in a blanket and set it horizontal and intentionally made it hot, that solder would soften and sort of reset itself.

This.

I've always had my 360 in a well-ventilated, horizontal position and never had any overheat problems.

I remember reading articles that something like 80% of all Xbox 360s before the improved design had failed and needed to be repaired/replaced. Id bet the only ones who didn't have this issue are those that handled the system as mentioned above, with a ton of ventilation and in a horizontal position. I'd call that a hardware flaw.

Most people stick their video games in an entertainment center or leave them on the carpeted floor (the worst spot possible).

I've had my xbox for 4-5 years now and only had 1 problem with it. I think it was an E64 error or something like that. I do have to say though, that the Microsoft support was fantastic. Mine was even off warranty and they still fixed it because of the type of error. I say fixed it, but what they really did was send me a new/refurbished one to replace it. They paid all shipping as well. Cost me nothing, and I was back up and gaming by the end of the week. I have the halo 3 special edition camo green/orange xbox. and the new one they sent me was even the same kind. So I usually stick up for microsoft in the console gaming world..... Windows is another story haha
